I realized that you probably meant that I should resend the sh patch that
I have currently in linux-next via Paul's tree that is broken by this
change.

Paul -- the patch below differs from the version have in two ways:
(1) I updated it to use the fixed BSS linker script macros from this
thread.
(2) I dropped the hunk that conflicted with a similar change in the percpu
tree[2], as the version of that change in the percpu tree is better.
